The Hungarian marque KEEWAY announced exciting introductory prices for its new product line up – Sixties 300i and Vieste 300. The products which received a massive response from the customers come with an exciting introductory price tag – Sixties 300i at Rs. 2,99,000/- (Ex-showroom, India), & Vieste 300 at Rs. 2,99,000/- (Ex-showroom, India). Founded in 1999 in Hungary, KEEWAY has built upon its guiding principles of fusing timeless style with cutting-edge technology and has a thriving presence in over 98 countries today.
The company’s ambitious plan for India is to introduce a total of 8 products across 4 categories by the end of 2022. Two dynamic products each in the categories of high-end scooters, muscular cruisers, sport motorcycles, and retro-street motorcycles, will help cater to a wide range of customers. KEEWAY is also extending the best-in-class 2-year unlimited KMS warranty as a standard offering.
Both these products of KEEWAY are feature-rich, performance-driven vehicles and come with a tech-enabled solution – KEEWAY Connect System. The integrated GPS unit with SIM card connects to the KEEWAY application and telecasts the whereabouts of the vehicle anywhere and anytime. An inbuilt battery powers the system and the vehicle can accurately track to 2.5 meters of its vicinity and for up to 3 hours even with the unit disconnected from the main battery. Other key features of the application include – remote switching off the engine, setting up of a geo-fence, maintaining ride records, setting max speed limit, and sharing location information with friends on community rides. For assistance during emergency requirements, the panic button feature helps transmit real-time location to 2 pre-set contacts via the app and also sets the process to avail roadside assistance.
Partnering with Adishwar Auto Ride India, KEEWAY would leverage Benelli’s 40+ dealer network across the country and the assembly plant that is well equipped to meet its ambitious growth plan.
Mr. Vikas Jhabakh, Managing Director, KEEWAY India, said, “We are delighted to introduce the new product line-up: Sixties 300i and Vieste 300 at an attractive price tag considering the market dynamics and customers’ preferences. Both these vehicles come with unmatched ergonomics, superior functionality, innovative technology, and uncompromised quality and this further helps us establish KEEWAY’s unique identity in the Indian market”
“We are working towards introducing 6 more products in the Indian market by the end of this year and would primarily comprise of two cruisers, two retro street classics, one naked street, and a race replica. To meet the business requirements, we also plan to expand our dealership network across the country and look at onboarding over 100 dealers by the end of 2023” he further added.
The SIXTIES 300i is available in 3 colours – Matte Light Blue, Matte White and Matte Grey. The SIXTIES 300i is a retro classic scooter that takes you back to the grooviest decade of them all, the ‘60s. A homage to the decade of flared pants, rock music, splashes of colour and distinct individualistic style, the SIXTIES 300i encourages the rider to break free from the ordinary and ride while making a bold fashion statement.
While the old school looks make it instantly attractive, what sets the pace for the SIXTIES 300i is the powerful 278cc engine that can leave behind most of the competition while looking stunning in the process. The single-cylinder, the four-stroke liquid-cooled engine produces a maximum power output of 18.7HP at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 22Nm at 6000 rpm, making the Sixties an agile and feisty commuter. Safety is not forgotten for the sake of fun, thanks to solid 120/70-12 tires and disc brakes with dual-channel ABS.
Although the looks take you back to half a century ago, the SIXTIES 300i features the latest in creature comforts. The scooter has an iconic yet supremely comfortable split seat. The retro-futuristic grille, distinct full-LED headlight combined with a unique dual LED brake lights and signal lights blends seamlessly into the rear of the scooter, which guarantees a second glance. A multi-function ignition switch incorporates the electric starter, the under-seat storage access, and a steering lock.
The sleek aerodynamic design with angular bodywork is both aesthetic and functional as it wraps around the cockpit, reducing turbulence at high speed. The attractive headlights, powered by four LED projectors and DRLs, provide ample illumination. The LED taillights and turn indicator signals sit flush with the slim bodywork for that distinctly clean European look. Wave goodbye to the days of searching for your keys.
